If you work in a medium or enterprise business, chances are that this scenario sounds familiar to you: business users switch regularly between different business systems in order to get their job done. The companies ecosystem lacks on logical bridges between multiple business systems, like BPM, ERP, CRM, SCM, SRM, PLM and others, that generate data within the company.
As a result, users ignore local ECM systems and often store documents on local hard drives, and, in order to see the whole picture, search for the needed structured and unstructured data manually. This not only takes a lot of time but also does not guarantee, that they find all the needed information they were looking for and in the latest version.
A study by AIIM shows that 61% of workers report that they operate in an environment where their lead application does not connect with all other business systems.
